The open-enrollment period for Medicare begins today, October 15th. Many senior citizens have recently received letters indicating that their previous benefit plans have been dropped or changed, which means many seniors will be in need of advice about their best course of action moving forward.
Popular providers United Healthcare, Bravo Health, and Highmark all cancelled some of their low-premium, low-deductible offerings. Seniors will need to select a new plan for 2014. Changes have occurred to several other plans, so it is worth looking into if you currently receive Medicare.
